ADHD medications (even the generic forms) can be as expensive as your rent or mortgage payment, but fortunately, there are programs that can help you pay for them. Many states have pharmaceutical assistance programs for people who need help paying for expensive prescriptions and health care, but don’t qualify for Medicaid. In addition, some drug makers will help through medication assistance programs or by giving a discount. Ask your pharmacist, your doctor, and your local ADHD organizations about state programs and other organizations that can help you find medication assistance programs in your area. Also, always make sure your doctor is giving you a prescription for the generic form, if it’s available. Generics are much less expensive to begin with.
